Professor, Ph.D. University of Nigeria

Research Interests Icon Research Interests

  • Indigenous/Aboriginal education - with specific focus on capacity building and the actualization of the CURA (Community-University Research Alliance) paradigm – an approach that generates maximal research benefits by integrating the research expertise in University (academic) settings with the usually untapped or under-utilized, but obviously abundant natural talents, available in Indigenous communities and environments.
  • Constructs of cultural border crossing and collateral learning in mathematics and science - with the overall goal of reversing the declining enrollment patterns in the fields of math and science, especially among learners from Indigenous and minority cultural backgrounds.
  • Contemporary issues and trends in STM education – documenting and blending into contemporary math and science curriculums the ethno science, mathematics, and technology (STM) knowledge and practices hidden in  most traditional societies scattered all over the globe.
